Gordon MacQuarrie: The Story of an Old Duck Hunter
By Keith Crowley with Foreword by Michael McIntosh
Although his typewriter has been silent for nearly 50 years, Gordon MacQuarrie's words continue to inspire generations of hunting and fishing enthusiasts. Through his "Stories of the Old Duck Hunters," most of which are still in print, MacQuarrie captured the intangible, emotional qualities of the outdoor life in a way that made him unique among his peers. As a result, his audience and his legend continue to grow.
